On Deck Experiences 50% Partner Surge Over Last Six Months

Company Opens Regional Offices, Hires Additional Employees to Support Rapid Growth

NEW YORK, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On Deck (www.ondeckcapital.com), the technology-powered Main Street lender, announced today that continued, strong demand for their innovative small business financing solution has resulted in a fifty percent growth surge in distribution partners over the past six months. The company now boasts more than 1,500 distribution partners nationwide, which enables On Deck to reach millions of small businesses.

To support this partner growth, On Deck has opened regional offices in Atlanta, Sarasota, Chicago, and Los Angeles. The company now counts over 140 employees, which has also resulted in plans for the company's New York headquarters and Virginia operations center to move to larger spaces in 2013. Small businesses' demand for financing continues to surge, yet banks still lack the infrastructure and technology to efficiently underwrite and deliver capital to the millions of Main Street businesses nationwide. On Deck's innovative technology platform can instantly identify creditworthy small businesses, and has become a growth engine for thousands of entrepreneurs. To date, the On Deck platform has delivered over $300 Million to small businesses nationwide.

"There has never been a better time to become an On Deck partner. Our market-leading business loan products, innovative productivity tools, and constant focus on service has led to this rapid growth of our partner network, almost all of which has occurred through word of mouth," said Noah Breslow, chief executive officer, On Deck. "Our partners recognize that we are on the forefront of leveraging technology to fundamentally change the way small businesses access capital." 

On Deck's current partner network reaches more than 1,000,000 Main Street businesses nationwide and includes banks, leasing companies, funding advisors, accountants, payroll firms, independent sales organizations and web-based businesses that offer small business tools and applications.

On Deck partners can use the On Deck lending platform to earn commissions and serve their customers in two ways: through the On Deck Partner Portal and through the On Deck API. The industry-leading On Deck Partner Portal is a powerful online CRM platform where partners can submit, track and monitor loans and applications in real time. The On Deck API allows partners to seamlessly integrate On Deck's powerful credit decision and application process into their own web service or CRM. All partners in the On Deck partners also receive dedicated sales support, customized training and webinars, online revenue management tools as well as turnkey marketing programs designed to maximize partner success.

On Deck's innovative technology platform is a transformative solution to America's small business lending challenges. The On Deck system provides the infrastructure needed to evaluate businesses based on electronic performance data rather than relying solely on the business owner's personal credit score. The typical On Deck customer is a "Main Street" business (retailer, restaurant, salon, dentist, florist, etc.) that has been in business more than one year and has revenue between $100,000 and $4,000,000.

Approved this February by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), HTTP/2 is the first major update to HTTP since 1999, when HTTP/1.1 was standardized. Designed with performance in mind, one of the biggest goals of HTTP/2 implementation is to decrease latency while maintaining a high-level compatibility with HTTP/1.1. Though not all testing activities will be impacted by the new protocol, it's important for testers to be aware of any changes moving forward.
Public Cloud IaaS started its life in the developer and startup communities and has grown rapidly to a $20B+ industry, but it still pales in comparison to how much is spent worldwide on IT: $3.6 trillion. In fact, there are 8.6 million data centers worldwide, the reality is many small and medium sized business have server closets and colocation footprints filled with servers and storage gear. While on-premise environment virtualization may have peaked at 75%, the Public Cloud has lagged in adop...
How do you securely enable access to your applications in AWS without exposing any attack surfaces? The answer is usually very complicated because application environments morph over time in response to growing requirements from your employee base, your partners and your customers. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Haseeb Budhani, CEO and Co-founder of Soha, shared five common approaches that DevOps teams follow to secure access to applications deployed in AWS, Azure, etc., and the friction an...
The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay. IDC estimates that the software-defined networking market will be valued at $3.7 billion by 2016. Security is a key component and benefit of the SDDC, and offers an opportunity to build security 'from the ground up' and weave it into the environment from day one. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin,...
Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
JavaScript is primarily a client-based dynamic scripting language most commonly used within web browsers as client-side scripts to interact with the user, browser, and communicate asynchronously to servers. If you have been part of any web-based development, odds are you have worked with JavaScript in one form or another. In this article, I'll focus on the aspects of JavaScript that are relevant within the Node.js environment.
Discussions about cloud computing are evolving into discussions about enterprise IT in general. As enterprises increasingly migrate toward their own unique clouds, new issues such as the use of containers and microservices emerge to keep things interesting. In this Power Panel at 16th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the state of cloud computing today, and what enterprise IT professionals need to know about how the latest topics and trends affect t...
This week, I joined SOASTA as Senior Vice President of Performance Analytics. Given my background in cloud computing and distributed systems operations — you may have read my blogs on CNET or GigaOm — this may surprise you, but I want to explain why this is the perfect time to take on this opportunity with this team. In fact, that’s probably the best way to break this down. To explain why I’d leave the world of infrastructure and code for the world of data and analytics, let’s explore the timing...
Countless business models have spawned from the IaaS industry. Resell Web hosting, blogs, public cloud, and on and on. With the overwhelming amount of tools available to us, it's sometimes easy to overlook that many of them are just new skins of resources we've had for a long time. In his General Session at 16th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Lead Technology Evangelist at SoftLayer, broke down what we've got to work with and discuss the benefits and pitfalls to discover how we can best use them to d...
Containers are changing the security landscape for software development and deployment. As with any security solutions, security approaches that work for developers, operations personnel and security professionals is a requirement. In his session at DevOps Summit, Kevin Gilpin, CTO and Co-Founder of Conjur, will discuss various security considerations for container-based infrastructure and related DevOps workflows.
Microservices are hot. And for good reason. To compete in today’s fast-moving application economy, it makes sense to break large, monolithic applications down into discrete functional units. Such an approach makes it easier to update and add functionalities (text-messaging a customer, calculating sales tax for a specific geography, etc.) and get those updates / adds into production fast. In fact, some would argue that microservices are a prerequisite for true continuous delivery. But is it too...
You often hear the two titles of "DevOps" and "Immutable Infrastructure" used independently. In his session at DevOps Summit, John Willis, Technical Evangelist for Docker, covered the union between the two topics and why this is important. He provided an overview of Immutable Infrastructure then showed how an Immutable Continuous Delivery pipeline can be applied as a best practice for "DevOps." He ended the session with some interesting case study examples.

Puppet Labs has published their annual State of DevOps report and it is loaded with interesting information as always. Last year’s report brought home the point that DevOps was becoming widely accepted in the enterprise. This year’s report further validates that point and provides us with some interesting insights from surveying a wide variety of companies in different phases of their DevOps journey.
"ProfitBricks was founded in 2010 and we are the painless cloud - and we are also the Infrastructure as a Service 2.0 company," noted Achim Weiss, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of ProfitBricks, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
Node.js is an open source runtime environment for server-side and network based applications. Node.js contains all the components needed to build a functioning website. But, you need to think of Node.js as a big tool box. As with any other art form, going to the tool box over and over to perform the same task is not productive. The concept of tool reuse is used in all forms of artistry and development is no exception.
One of the ways to increase scalability of services – and applications – is to go “stateless.” The reasons for this are many, but in general by eliminating the mapping between a single client and a single app or service instance you eliminate the need for resources to manage state in the app (overhead) and improve the distributability (I can make up words if I want) of requests across a pool of instances. The latter occurs because sessions don’t need to hang out and consume resources that could ...
What we really mean to ask is whether microservices architecture is SOA done right. But then, of course, we’d have to figure out what microservices architecture was. And if you think defining SOA is difficult, pinning down microservices architecture is unquestionably frying pan into fire time. Given my years at ZapThink, fighting to help architects understand what Service-Oriented Architecture really was and how to get it right, it’s no surprise that many people ask me this question.
The Internet of Things. Cloud. Big Data. Real-Time Analytics. To those who do not quite understand what these phrases mean (and let’s be honest, that’s likely to be a large portion of the world), words like “IoT” and “Big Data” are just buzzwords. The truth is, the Internet of Things encompasses much more than jargon and predictions of connected devices. According to Parker Trewin, Senior Director of Content and Communications of Aria Systems, “IoT is big news because it ups the ante: Reach out ...
Cloud Migration Management (CMM) refers to the best practices for planning and managing migration of IT systems from a legacy platform to a Cloud Provider through a combination professional services consulting and software tools. A Cloud migration project can be a relatively simple exercise, where applications are migrated ‘as is’, to gain benefits such as elastic capacity and utility pricing, but without making any changes to the application architecture, software development methods or busine...
